those are awesome, I saw those all over the town of Mineral last time I was up north hunting around, I had no clue they were parasitic!

they definitely have a strange texture and form to them, when I saw them out the car window I came to a screeching halt and jumped out in the middle of the road to go look at them, I thought it was a mass fruiting of Aseroe rubra
